This is a great DIY Windchime project you can make using old things you have around the house.

DIY Windchime

You can make this DIY windchime project with things you have in your home that can be recycled. I got this idea from my sister-in-law Lisa. While we were on vacation visiting her, in Florida she made one of these unique windchimes, I of course loved it so much I had to make one. The best part about these windchimes is you can personalize it however you like. I went to Goodwill and picked up the lids, pan and utensils for about $5. My husband picked up the 18G wire for me at our local hardware store for under $4, and I had most of the beads.

Supplies DIY Windchime

Here is what I used for my windchime:

2 lids

1 mold pan

Metal measuring spoons

2 spoons, forks and knives

Wire cutters

Needle nose pliers

Drill with titanium drill bits for drilling the holes

A large variety of beads-make sure the holes in the beads are big enough for the wire to fit thru

Directions:

DIY Windchime

Drill holes in the center of both lids and mold pan. Drill holes around the top lid for the wire to hang the utensils. Drill holes in the top of utensils and the center of the bottom for beads.  Cut wire to desired lengths-I cut the wire in a variety of lengths so the utensils would hit at different places.

I beaded the center wire adding the mold pan and lid at the bottom at the end of the wire I added a bead and curled the wire. For the holes around the lid I curled the wire, added a bead and threaded through the hole.

 DIY Windchime

I beaded the wire, added the utensil, a bead and curled the wire. On the bottom of the utensils I curled a small piece of wire on the back, added a bead and curled the front.

My windchime is a little heavy because I beaded all of the wire but you don’t have to. The great thing about this project is you can use whatever you have on hand to make a windchime.

It is a terrific project to upcycle old items you have in the house. You can also use as many or few beads as you like to make it uniquely yours. I hope you enjoy this project. If you have an idea for a project, please leave me a comment below. I would love to hear your project ideas!
